Wike describes his election nullification as temporary set back

18 December 2015, 15:03

Port Harcourt - Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has described Wednesday’s nullification of his election by the Court of Appeal as a temporary setback, reports Vanguard.

Addressing thousands of Rivers State people who thronged the Port Harcourt International Airport to receive him on Thursday, Wike said the mandate of the people will prevail at the end of the day.

He urged the people to remain peaceful, insisting that the state remains Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), despite the contrived situation at present.

He stated that his lawyers have already started the process of Appeal to the Supreme Court, noting that after the Supreme Court, the PDP will work with whatever judgment emanates from the apex court.

He also said the PDP was ready for the National Assembly election as ordered by the Appeal Court, but warned that the people would resist any attempt by the Federal Government to use soldiers and policemen to manipulate the elections.
